Franklin County Sgt. Steve Pelton vividly recalls his violent encounter 13 years ago with Gary Wenzel, the man who was shot and killed by a Bourbon police officer last week following a high-speed pursuit.

It was Feb. 3, 2001, when Wenzel and Pelton fought on a bluff off of Mill Hill Road east of St. Clair. The fight broke out after Pelton tried to stop and question Wenzel about an earlier incident in which he had thrown a large rock onto the hood of a sheriff’s patrol car.
